Plans

As I’ve navigated through my life, I have racked up countless memories, both pleasant and horrible ones. While some have faded, others have sharpened. The best memories in my life all feature my friends and family. Throughout the early days of my professional career, some of the strongest memories focused on the heading out for a meal with my friend and co-worker. It didn’t matter where we went, we would order our meal and talk about everything from the upcoming projects to the next game night and everything in between while we ate.

When I grabbed a first line prompt, ‘We could get arrested for this..’, my mind instantly drew upon those memories. After the thoughts tumbled together in my mind, the first draft of the mini-story flew from my fingers effortlessly. It didn’t take long for me to fine tune this interaction between Harry and Sean.

Come, sit down and allow me to give you a mini-escape and kindle your imagination.

Harry pulled a fry from his plate and waved it like a conductor directing his orchestra. “There’s a reason the saying, no plan survives initial contact with the enemy, exists.”

“This one is perfect.”

Harry tore the slice of potato in half and popped the smaller piece into his mouth. “The greatest generals in history achieved their reputation because of their willingness and ability to adapt.”

“I’ve planned every detail. Nothing’s going to happen.”
